Interestingly enough, light therapy was first discovered by NASA astronauts as a way to grow plants in space. Other than the blue light therapy, the Red light therapy in dermatology was investigated as doctors noticed an increasing amount of patients who were immune to the normal antibiotic treatments used to get rid of acne. The studies recently expanded to observe whether red light therapy can also be used to get rid of wrinkles.
Red light easily penetrates the dermis and can help with a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, scarring and eczema, as well as improving skin quality
The heat and light boost circulation, bringing more blood and nutrients to the area. It also instigates the release of chemical messengers called cytokines. As more cytokines are released, collagen producing cells called fibroblasts leap into action. If healing is required, then the skin will heal; if it is already healthy, you will get a plumping effect from the extra collagen created.
